Wilmington NC Bridal Photography

Bridal Photography Sessions are one of my favorite photography sessions. A bride in her wedding dress with out a wedding day schedule attached equals a great time to creatively use light and photograph you in your dress in more creative ways than we can normally shoot on a wedding day. This allows me to photograph a complete portfolio with multiple styles to choose form. Any one that has been married will tell you that your wedding day will be a blur. The great thing about bridals, even if you don’t plan to have a portrait on display the day of your wedding, is that we know going into your wedding that we have you and your dress covered when things get behind schedule on your wedding day.

I do not have to be your wedding photographer to be your bridal portrait photographer. I think every bride should have a bridal portrait session. I explain in more detail on my wedding website where you should go and check out some awesome bridal and wedding photography.

I love wedding photography and have my own signature style of wedding photography. I coin my style as Lifestyle Wedding Photography. Lifestyle Wedding Photography is you, your style and personality throughout the wedding process. This includes both the engagement photography and bridal photography process. I do not photograph just one style, but a blend of styles that are free to create with the personalities of the couples I work with. One thing I have learned is that no two brides are alike and no two brides see a picture the same way. I threw out the cookie cutter and handcraft every wedding picture myself.

Lifestyle wedding photography may be a bit difficult to define as there is not an industry definition. In fact, I do not know of anyone that refers to a wedding photography style to as “Lifestyle Wedding Photography” by itself. I do, and here’s why. I am a multiple-style photographer. I do not tend to stay in one style or the other but rather photograph several different styles at the same time. For me, lifestyle wedding photography is an attitude, a flexibility, a way to create individual styles that reflect the personalities of my clients. Therefore, it is fluid, free flowing and not bound by any “one” look. That’s why you will see a blend of styles on my website. It is about me creating with your style or “lifestyle,”not just shooting mine. There is a lot that goes into style. Take a little time to read about styles and how I see them.

This is a snapshot of what we do. We have a whole website dedicated just for wedding photography. If you are looking for bridals photography, engagement photography or wedding photography, be sure to check out lifestyle wedding photography by Chris Lang at Wilmington NC Wedding Photographers Wedding Photographers website for a in-depth portfolio and wedding resources.

When it comes down to choosing your wedding photographer, there are a lot of things to take into consideration. Imperative things to ponder would be the style, professional experience, professionalism, and reputation of the wedding photographer. There are many different styles of wedding photography. Most important, however, is the artistry of your photographer. When it come to your wedding, you should rather think that hiring a wedding photographer is the same a commissioning an artist to make your pictures. It is important to consider that the Wedding Photography Style, “A Photographers Style,” and the :Pictures Style: will shape how your pictures are made.

    Bridal Session with Christina at River Landing Country Club | Wallace NC | River Landing Wedding Photographers

    River Landing is not only a beautiful wedding venue but also makes for the perfect location and backdrop for bridal photography.   Christina was having her wedding on the River Landing Veranda and wanted to have her bridal portrait made in some of the popular River Landing photography locations.

    The above pictures were made on the deck overlooking the pond by the River Landing covered bridge.

    The above series of pictures were made at the River Landing Covered Bridge .  One of my favorite places for sure on a wedding day.  Such a classic presentation and backdrop for any wedding.

    The day we photographed Christina's bridal session it was raining so for more than half the time were were photographing inside the River Landing club house or under cover areas.  The above photos were made in the front of the clubhouse under the front door awning.   To create the impression  of a bright beautiful day I used a canon 200 f2 telephoto lens to blow out the background and used a small bush behind Christina to create a natural garden style feel and look.  Using this lens allows me to do things that most other lenses cannot as you can seen in the pictures above.  One would not think that there was a parking lot behind her.   Due to weather at this point in the session, we did not know if we were going to have a chance to make it outside to the River Landing brick bridge or the waterfall on 18.  One of the 3 above bridal pictures was Christina's selection for the bridal portrait.

    When we got our first break from the rain we scampered outside the took a few shots at the River Landing Waterfall  and the River Landing covered bridge and had just a few minutes at the vineyards.

    There is always opportunity to create and when photographing outside.  When the outside is your studio for the day you get what you get and create with the light you have to make great pictures.   There is alway opportunity to create.  It is a mindset to seek opportunity in any conditions rather than let the conditions impact creativity.  If you are looking for River landing wedding photographers be sure to find someone who can be creative in any condition and variations of light.
